OMG. The world is coming to an end. All those movies and shows about an apocalyptic zombie world is more close to reality than it was just a few years ago. I can’t even watch the news anymore or read anything online. Is it true? Is it Fake News? Are the fact checkers even real? I can’t even today.
I do know I need to keep my sanity. Or what’s left of it. So I have decided to cut back on the news and the reading. I would rather be in the dark on certain things than trying to research stuff to see if it’s true or not. Or let my emotions get in the way of reality. I am becoming hard-hearted. I am finding myself disliking most people who spew hate and untruths. People who think their opinions are fact and anyone who disagrees with it are evil. I’m over it.
I know a lot of you feel the same. Some of you want to march, protest, shout etc. Some of you want to just hide away for a while. We all are dealing with things differently, and that is ok. Stop shaming others for being silent, stop harassing others who choose to protest. We are all different in how we handle things. This year has been tough and stressful for everyone.
If you are having a hard time understanding life right now, seek help. Get counseling or therapy. Turn off the news, stop reading the paper. Spend more time with family and friends doing things that are meaningful. Avoid people who make you feel bad or want to debate everything and stress you out. Take time for yourself and mediate on what’s important in your life.
Things will pass and change eventually. Or the world will explode and we won’t have to worry about it anymore. lol Just remember that everyone deals with stress differently and that’s ok. You do you, and I’ll do me.
